I have been circling for a thousand years
and i still don't know if I am a falcon
or a storm
or a great song

large emptiness winter

It's really awkward and heavy.
It's really new - do I love the white horizontal stitching?  I still need to know that.
I do love the paisley back with white big thread.
Maybe it wants some couched lines.  Maybe it needs to be quilted in the ditches.

It's not going to Mexico with me.

when you meet that person
a person
one of your soulmates
let the connection
be what it is

it may be five minutes
five hours
five days
five months
five years
a life time
five life times

let it manifest itself in the way it is meant to
it has an organic desitny
this way if it stays
or if it leaves

you will be softer

from having been loved this authentically
souls come into
and sweep through your life for a myriad of reasons

let them be who
and what
they are meant
